Rosslyn real estate guide & listings for sale
Rosslyn is quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case close to one of the railway lines or the airport (YQT).
The preferred method of transportation in Rosslyn is usually driving. It is very easy to park. However, commuting by transit can be very hard in Rosslyn by reason of the infrequent service. Nevertheless, house owners benefit from a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most residences. This area is not very suitable for those who travel by foot because almost no common errands can be run without having to resort to a vehicle.
Nearly 95% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners whereas the remainder are rented. Single detached homes and townhouses are the main housing type in this part of the city. About 30% of properties in this neighbourhood were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1980s. This neighbourhood is primarily composed of four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes.
There are only a few primary schools in Rosslyn and consequently they can be a rather long walk away. Likewise, this part of Thunder Bay does not have any high schools. Furthermore, it can be very hard to get to daycares as a pedestrian. Concerning eating, it is very rarely possible for property owners in this part of the city to travel to the closest grocery store by walking.
